I, for one, wish Google the best of luck. Hopefully they can pull Google
Groupers out of UseNet altogether.
Blinky has been killfiling posts from Google Groups for quite some time and
inspires many of us to do the same.
PS/Disclaimer - There are posters who use Google Groups who understand
netiquette and whose contribution is highly appreciated and welcome (content
is the Web-related newsgroups). However, they remain a small minority, so
predudice is often practised.
